Preaching to the Choir*

Alas, Dear Gentle Reader(s), the loyal opposition is foundering on the shoals of its historical rhetoric, as evidenced by a column** delineating the speechifying at the recently concluded Conservative Political Action Conference.

Under the title “Conservatives Energized by 'Ideas' at Conference,” Salena Zito tells us that the Republican party must avoid becoming the party of “no,” saying “yes, but,” using Twitter, and that “conservatives believe in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”


Shall we count the “Ideas”?  (Is there anyone who is an Independent or a Democrat who doesn’t believe in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?)

Any resemblance to the Republican Party of 2009 and 1952 (Eisenhower’s first election) ends with the name.

Trust, but verify (certainly before casting a vote).


*Take your pick—Zito’s choir or my Dear Gentle Reader(s)!

**Available at Real Clear Politics—an excellent source for a range of opinion.
